So, every cosmetology expert needs to keep pace with the changing trends and techniques.
It goes without saying that to have a successful career in this field, you need to get educated from the right institution. While there are many such places around India, few can compare to the quality education in beauty culture and cosmetology that is given by IWP.
As one of the leading education hubs for women in India, IWP offers a number of courses. Among these, beauty culture and cosmetology course is one of the most popular because it is highly rewarding. At the same time, the demand for beauty experts is immense.
From individual beauty salons to top-notch exclusive beauty and wellness centres, there are countless places that a qualified beauty expert can find employment. However, it is important to make a good start before you get into working this field professionally.
So, let us have a look at how IWP can help you gain a thorough understanding of this field. Moreover, we are going to look at the professional approach you should adopt and what is taught to Beauty and Cosmetology students at IWP.What Is the Teaching Philosophy of Beauty and Cosmetology at IWP?
IWP is one of the first and foremost educational institutions for women in India. It has held this prized position for many years thanks to its ability to keep pace with the changing needs of the business. This means that the courses we teach are always on the cutting edge and equip students with the right knowledge and skills to help them prosper professionally.
The Beauty Culture and Cosmetology Course at IWP is particularly well known for being among the best in the national circuit. It has a long and illustrious history of producing immensely successful cosmetology experts. These students have gone on to work with major national and international organizations involved in beauty and wellness. Some students have also started their own wellness boutique and are flourishing as entrepreneurs.
All of this is thanks to the very intense and diverse teaching methodology and philosophy we adopt at IWP. It trains students to think critically and implement their hands-on skills training in various highly effective ways.
Now, let's have a look at the actual training method that we encourage every student to adopt and integrate into their way of working.
Master the Basics : This is the first thing that students at IWP are taught when they begin their training in beauty culture and cosmetology. You might think that mastering the basics is a rather simple task. But actually, it is one of the most complicated things you will do in your life. This is because while the premise of the basics of beauty and cosmetology are simple to understand, it is their implementation that is rather complex. This does not mean that you have to really struggle to master them. Rather, it means that you need the right guidance and proper application of theory to hone your skills in the right way.
At IWP, students are taught all the basics of cosmetology and beauty that they will find in use all over the world. This enables them to gather professionally vital skills and abilities that can not only help them launch a successful career but also develop into knowledgeable professionals with a reputation for excellence.
To help students become more proficient, our educators also explain the various ways in which these basics are implemented by professionals across the world. Moreover, students get to understand the variations between the different trends and methods used by professionals in different parts of the world.
The basics of cosmetology are also inclusive of different traditions that have influenced modern beauty and make-up training programs. This means that while students learn about the internationally applicable process, they also learn about how we Indians use the same in our daily lives. Also, students are taught how to use their knowledge to beautify various skin types.
Naturally, when our students go out into the world equipped with this knowledge and exposure, they are able to get more out of their job than others. This is because they have worked and trained under the best and now can use those same skills to make a name for themselves.
Take It to The Next Level : After our students have mastered the basics, they are introduced to advanced beauty treatment and cosmetology concepts. Since they already have a strong foundation, they have little trouble in understanding and adapting to the advanced topics.
What students are made to understand in this part of the course is that while the basics are broad in scope, the advanced topics are more specific. So, for example, if you understand the basics how to bring out the natural beauty of any skin type. Then you should also be able to use advanced techniques to further beautify any skin with the right kind of cosmetics.
This is just one example of the many kinds of applications you can do for advanced beauty and cosmetology concepts. A very important aspect of this part of the teaching methodology is helping students develop their own unique techniques. Obviously, this cannot be done in one single day. Rather it takes years of practice and exposure to develop a strong grasp of advanced techniques and then modify them to suit each client better.
Nevertheless, what we do at IWP is sow the seeds for the development of inventive techniques. Since they naturally develop the habit of thinking different from the standard, our beauty and cosmetology students are better equipped at becoming experts with their own way of beautification and developing advanced treatments.
Knowing the Business : This is the final part of the training process and is instrumental in helping students become able to handle businesses. While it is very important to understand the basics and advanced aspects of beauty and cosmetology, it is equally important to know how to use this knowledge for business.
What we mean here is that no student wants to remain just another beautician in a parlor. Rather, they want to become managers or wellness department heads. Naturally, this requires them to have a good understanding of how the business works. For this, students are taught how to manage any beauty and wellness business.
The first part of this section revolves around the management of the services offered. This means that the student sees what services should be offered and orients her workers accordingly. Since the student has a solid understanding of basic and advanced aspects of beauty culture and cosmetology, they are easily able to oversee the work quality and methods adopted by their juniors.
The next part of this section revolves around client management as well as maintenance of business records. A manager needs to be able to handle all kinds of situations with tact. So, students at IWP learn how to manage various kinds of situations from angry clients to dissatisfied clients to all kinds of other situations where they need to exercise good judgment and interpersonal skills.
Alongside, they are given a detailed insight into the financial process that is integral to the management of businesses. As a result, our students learn to manage all aspects of the beauty and wellness business and are well-placed for being renowned experts in their field.
